to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi

new. here in michigan, obviously, it's been very hard hit in large part because of the auto industry. the white house, clearly, picked the gm headquarters to talk a little bit about the auto bailouts which they believe saved thousands of jobs. and the unemployment rate in this state has dropped. two summers ago it was over 14%. now it's 10.9%. but, obviously, still far worse than the national average, still very dangerous politically for a president who's facing re-election. i should note as well that some of the union officials, the labor crowd, the president also trying to rev up his political operation heading into 2012. the teamster president, jimmy hoffa jr., was speaking a couple moments ago and saying we'll remember in november who's with the working people. he was chiding republicans, specifically named the tea party, and then his language got a lot stronger, and pardon my language as i repeat it. he said of the tea party and republicans, quote, let's take these sons of bitches out. it got some cheers here from the crowd in detroit. megyn: i just want to make sure we understa

and the administration abruptly fired the coach. five days ahead of the game with michigan, one of the greatest rivalries in the country, they fire their coach. they're infuriated by this decision. the expression of public anger took the form of one of those college sports moments that makes our executive, bill wolf cry at meetings when he tries to explain them. hours after coach earl bruce was fired, 150 members of the ohio state marching band marched to earl bruce's house and serenaded their old devastated coach with ohio state fight songs. ♪ the whole state of michigan ♪ we're from ohio >> coach earl bruce was not a man who wants to reveal his emotions.open with the band on his lawn. five days later ohio state traveled to michigan and somehow beat their arch rivals and the buckeye players carried coach earl bruce off the field on their shoulders. serenading leads to weeping, leads to upset victory and redemption. earl bruce's week in november 1987 was the standard in which tearful marching band stories must, must be judged. the best thing in the world is right up there with it. it's maybe even as
obama will spend his labor day in michigan a state hard hit by employment. in his annual address, the president is expected to preview his jobs plan to union workers and their families in detroit. he'll unveil his entire plan in a speech on thursday night. the administration says it will lay out a series of steps that congress could act upon, including transportation and infrastructure initiatives. initiatives to help homeowners and tax breaks to support new hires. >> if you are not hiring, you're unpatriotic according to the international brotherhood of teamers james hoffa. on the state of the union, hoffa called apple, general electric and pfizer unpatriotic for opening factories and stores overseas instead of investing in employment right here in the united states. he said, big companies have a responsibility to get americans back to work and if they aren't doing that, president obama should call them out. >> i think the president should challenge the patriotism of these american corporations that are sitting on the sidelines saying why do we have high unemployment but i'm not
and it has started. jennifer granholm is a former governor of michigan, now an msnbc contributor, and the author of a brand-new book "a governor's story, a fight for jobs in america's future." and bob strum is an economic strategist. i want you to listen to this. clinton strategist mark penn who worked for the clintons said, "obama's new tone won't work." he writes in "the huffington post, "quote, barack obama is careening down the wrong path towards re-election. he should be claiming the vital center, not abandoning it. he should be holding down taxes rather than raising them. he should be bringing the country together rather than dividing it through class warfare. that's mark penn. he's critiquing the president's new move to divide the country between those who want fair taxes and those who are rich, who don't. your thoughts, bob shrum? >> well, you know, that's marcus saying this kind of stuff all the time. two reactions to it. first, it was a remarkably fact-free and numbers-free piece from a guy who's supposed to be a pollster. he says, for example, that gore lost -- i actua
will support this democratic president or will we see in places like michigan what we saw in the reagan days, blue collar reagan democrats helping the republicans? >> i think it's going to be different this time because of the attack on the -- on labor by the tea party. we had 100,000 people at a rally in madison, wisconsin. we had 50,000 people in ohio. we collected a million signatures in ohio. people realize what's going on, that they might have voted republican a small group of organized labor. but i think people are aware now that this group is coming after them. when they start talking about, you know, getting rid of social security, medicare, medicaid, rolling back collective bargaining in major states, i think this is -- this has been the wake-up call an maybe labor needs. and some of those people that voted republican are now going to say, what a mistake i made because i didn't know they were going to take my job away, i didn't know they were going to take clollective bargaining awa. you saw what they did and what they believe in. and you heard this debate in washington with regard
the jobs numbers and this city suffering worst than most. unemployment here is at -- well, in michigan it's at 10.9%, but in detroit it's almost at 16%. over 50% are among the long-term unemployed. why does that matter in this is a state that the president won by 17 points. and now his approval rating in the state is at 34%. those are bismol numbers, ted. he has to get the numbers up if he hopes to win re-election. we will see the president here not just today but a lot in the next year as he campaigns for re-election. >> any hint on what he will talk about today and specifically if there will be any sneak peek into what he will deliver on thursday in terms of his plan? >> in terms of the plan we will hear him talk about the fact that he will press for measures that had bipartisan support in the past. this is a big theme for the white house, the kinds of initiatives he is proposing to increase job employment in this country, and they have had the support of republicans previously so should again. i know that we will have him talk about the importance of having a strong middle class for ec

. as i were he is heading to detroit michigan where he will start rolling out his plan to put more people to work. he will speak at a rally of thousands of labor union members. on thursday night the president will address the joint session of congress on job creation. on friday he will travel to richmond. there he will promote the program. all of this comes on the heels of the disappointing jobs report for august in which no jobs were created. jobs will be the major focus in the pivotal week ahead for republican candidates and the president. the upcoming gop debate in major presidential address will focus squarely on getting people back to work. republicans are no longer receiving criticism for the commander in chief. and they are definitely taking aim at each other. >> absolutely. this morning we heard a lot of back and forth between rich. mitt romney -- rick perry and mitt romney. >> republicans have not picked a nominee yet. >> point in six americans cannot find a job. that is not a recovery that is an economic disaster. over the next seven days the top republican candid

been very useful to democrats in michigan. in the auto industry. so, initially, you have this sort of sense of acquiescence by democrats that, all right, we don't normally offset emergency funding, but to get this through and to avoid another big fight, we're going to do it. but then democrats seemed to sense an opening. there was a newly combative attitude coming out of the white house thaw referred to earlier, and they decided to hold the line on their troops, and they voted against the c.r. in the house, sending the original, in the original vote it we want down to defeat. republicans rallied. they made cosmetic changed to get their people on board. and then the senate, which had been expected to sort of swallow whatever came over from the house, decide that had they would get their back up and that they would block, which they did. so now we're supposed to have a vote on the democrat i go version, which provides extra money in disaster relief without cutting the loan program or the other things that republicans threw in, but that's expected to fail as well. so over the weekend,

punished big states like michigan and florida for putting their presidential primaries too early? well, republicans are trying to get tough, too. their party rules will strip half the delegates from any state besides the traditional early birds, iowa, new hampshire, south carolina and republicans went ahead and added nevada this time. that go before march 6th. the time that they want to dedicate super tuesday. but we already have arizona jumping. they jumped the deadline. they set its primary for february 28th. florida is currently slated in their law for january 31st and a handful of other states that also want to share the early state spotlight. josh putnam is a political science professor at davidson college. he runs a great blog, front loading hq.com. and, of course, mark murray is the deputy nbc news political director. all right. i got to start with you, josh because mark and i have to make our holiday plans, okay? so let's begin. we do know this. the arizona decision does mean one thing. it means that iowa at least will be some time in the middle of january at the earliest. is t
the stadium twice because of heavy rain and lightning. and university of michigan's game against western michigan was stopped late in the third quarter because of lightning. and it never resumed. michigan, by the way, keeping score, won that game. >>> finally, it seems that movie stars are never out of the spotlight. but just ask crystal the monkey. the primate star of "night at the museum," and "the hangover part 2," was spotted on a flight from l.a. to newark yesterday. the 17-year-old female monkey smiled for her fans and posed for pictures. how about that? i did a little research. and i could not find an faa regulation that says you cannot let a monkey buy a ticket and fly on a plane. >> ron asked his producer, why is this monkey sitting in first class? >> as far as we know, she was in coach. you know? a beer. >> low-key. incognito. >>> let's check the weather. we're going back to scott padgett, from our miami station, local 10, wplg, also known as tropical storm lee. >> thanks so much there -- is it david? >> i knew that was coming. >> let's take a look at what's going on. a cold fr

's already another case pending in the supreme court. that is one that came out of michigan, the sixth circuit court of appeals, which said the obama care is fine, they upheld the law. so now you have potentially two cases. it would seem very likely then that the supreme court would take the case up this term. >> does it matter which case they take up? i mean, i guess it matters in the case of do you defend or do you go against the one decision or defend what are the court rulings. >> my guess is that the supreme court would take both of them and do what they call consolidating them. in other words, sort of roll them all up into one big ball and say let's look at both decisions here. now, by the way, we're assuming that the supreme court would take the case. let me just say -- >> why wouldn't they? >> there are other cases pending. there's one in washington in the federal circuit. there's sort of a late to the party issue here, which is is the way to look at this say it's a tax and if p there is a tax, there's a federal law that says you can't challenge a law that would -- >> delay to
